Every year brings something new when it comes to bathroom trends and 2018 really has so much to offer. From luxurious classic bathrooms to interesting materials, tiles and even introduction of electronics, this year really has something for everyone. So, no matter if you’re a gadget freak that’s obsessed with modernity or a romantic at heart that leans more towards the warmth of classicism, take a look at what’s new in the world of bathroom trends in 2018.
More and more people yearn to reconnect with nature because of our stressful urban lives. So, if you wish to give your bathroom a warm and homey vibe, using natural materials is the way to go. Think warm wood and sturdy stone that will soften the modern sterility of any space. One great way to incorporate stone into your bathroom is with sinks. You can choose the level of finish and the amount of grain and texture for your sink, but no matter which one you choose, it can really be a focal point of your bathroom.
One trend that’s not popular only for its look, but also for its practicality is walk-in showers. They will instantly give your bathroom a luxurious spa feeling, which is why so many people invest in them. Creating a shower like this requires some building work, but in return, it will make your bathroom more spacious and will provide you with a unique shower experience. It’s also perfect for both juniors and seniors, and especially those with limited mobility.
2018 is all about textures and tactile experiences, so it’s not a surprise that 3D tiles are becoming more and more popular in bathrooms. 3D tiles come in many sizes, shapes and textures, from funky 70s style, 60s pop art and elegant art deco patterns to more organic waves and asymmetrical patterns.
Play that funky music
We are very reluctant to leave our gadgets behind, so many choose to install electronics in their bathrooms. In 2018, devices like speakers, Bluetooth and docking stations are merging with bathroom mirrors, vanities and even showerheads. Yes, your showerhead can double as a speaker for all those who enjoy singing in the shower. Also, a well-placed TV can make your baths even more enjoyable. Now you can catch up with your favorite shows while getting pampered.
Victorian and Edwardian bathrooms
Thanks to period TV shows and movies, more and more people desire to relive those olden times through their interior design. You can give your bathroom a makeover and turn it into an elegant and comfy room fit for royalty. Think freestanding baths, brass fixtures, and other decorative details for your Victorian bathroom. Your bathtub should really be the focal point of your bathroom, and you can make it even more inviting by installing some floor-mounted faucets and a traditional washstand.
Sometimes all you need is a little extra warmth on your toes and your towels to make your day, especially during cold winter days, and people in 2017 seem to understand that. The trend of radiant floors is quite energy efficient because the heat is directly touching your body. Also, it works well with stone and tiles (the usual bathroom flooring materials) that radiate heat very efficiently. However, if you’re not ready for an investment as big as heated floors, a simple towel warmer will provide you with some extra warmth for a much lower price.
No matter the size and current state of your bathroom, if you want to give some of these new trends a go, feel free to try them out. You can’t go wrong with any of these trends and they will certainly make your bathroom much comfier and luxurious.
